Successive Govts failed to address problems of Pasighat West


RUKSIN, Mar 20: So many elections have gone and leaderships changed, but the perennial problems of Ruksin area under Pasighat-West constituency remained unsolved. Even though successive state governments have spent huge amount of fund in Ruksin area, but the benefits of development is yet to reach the densely populated villages under the sub-division.

Basic amenities, including rural road connectivity, water supply, improved technologies in agriculture and allied sectors are still eluding the rural areas spreading in three circles Ruksin, Bilat and Sille-Oyan.

Ruksin area located at vulnerable inter-state border with Assam is still lagging far behind other places in development front, which is causing a great deal of dissatisfaction amongst the people. The senior citizens of the area have blamed their elected MLAs and MPs for showing utter negligence towards development of the most important inter-state boundary area.

Renovation of 14 km Mirem-Mikong-Jonai (MMJ)) road, functioning of the Industrial Growth Centre at Niglok, establishment of full-fledge BDO office at Ruksin HQ, construction of drain in Ruksin township, functioning of Gram Panyayat offices, improvement of health care service in local hospitals and establishment of a fire brigade at Ruksin are some of the many long pending public demands, which the elected leaders have miserably failed to deal with.

Locals said though there is an SDO office at Ruksin, a lot of Sub-divisional offices are yet to be set up and this is forcing the common people to go to Pasighat for official works like payment of treasury challan, obtaining necessary documents like Permanent Resident Certificate (PRC), Caste Certificates etc.

Locals opine that the much-hyped MMJ road and other rural development issues are related to the winning prospect of an MLA contesting from Pasighat-West constituency.

“Indifferent role of the elected MLAs have made our life miserable. Time has now come to elect the candidate, who can assure a time-bound action plan for solving our perennial problems”, the local citizens avowed.

Internal wrangling causing embarrassment to BJP


After a hectic parley, the miffed BJP patriarch LK Advani this evening agreed to contest election from Gandhinagar parliamentary constituency. Earlier report had indicated that Advani wanted to contest from Bhopal and was unhappy with the decision of BJP parliamentary board to nominate him from Gandhinagar. Such was his intensity of anger that many senior leaders including BJP Prime Ministerial nominee Narendra Modi, Sushma Swaraj, Arun Jaitley and Nitin Gadkari meet him to placate veteran leader.

Though BJP may claim that it is internal matter of party and that all is well, but, incident clearly shows the deep division among senior leaders. The Advani camp still does not seem convinced with working style of PM Nominee Narendra Modi. Despite, best effort by PR team of party, the differences between Advani and Modi camp always crops up in public arena causing immense embarrassment to party. With election just few days away, BJP will have to first fight internal wrangling before taking on electoral battle. If party is not able to contain internal fight, it may have serious repercussion and perhaps may cost BJP badly in the parliamentary election.

People need support strong leader

Dear Editor,

The coming Lok Sabha election is going to be tough walk for all the political parties. Earlier, people use to join politics for social work but nowadays objective has taken a different route. We see corrupted, self-centric, and dynastic politics.

After Aam admi party wave in India, something has changed. AAP has reminded political parties to prefer people over their self-interests. They have even reminded them of worst fate a political party can suffer if it does not work properly. The anti-corruption wave has forced people to come clean if they want to contest election. Now, it will be a litmus test for the people of country as well as political parties. Today, people demand honest leaders with enough understanding for the people needs and development.

It is the time to let leaders hear you and if not force them to hear you. In one way or the other, it does not matter who comes to power. What matters is the development. Political leaders need to review their performances if they sincerely want to work for people. Public must also review its decisions of whom to vote and who to choose.


Tao Tara,

Some insight on good governance

Dear Editor,

There is no single exhaustive definition of “good governance,” nor is there a delimitation of its scope, that commands universal acceptance. The term is used with great flexibility; this is an advantage, but also a source of some difficulty at the operational level. Depending on the context and overriding objective sought, good governance has been said at various times to encompass: full respect of human rights, the rule of law, effective participation, multi-actor partnerships, political pluralism, transparent and accountable processes and institutions, an efficient and effective public sector, legitimacy, access to knowledge, information and education, political empowerment of people, equity, sustainability, and attitudes and values that foster responsibility, solidarity and tolerance.

However, there is a significant degree of consensus that good governance relates to political and institutional processes and outcomes that are deemed necessary to achieve the goals of development. It has been said that good governance is the process whereby public institutions conduct public affairs, manage public resources and guarantee the realization of human rights in a manner essentially free of abuse and corruption, and with due regard for the rule of law. The true test of "good" governance is the degree to which it delivers on the promise of human rights: civil, cultural, economic, political and social rights. The key question is: are the institutions of governance effectively guaranteeing the right to health, adequate housing, sufficient food, quality education, fair justice and personal security?
